Brain diseases can be very difficult to treat without drugs that cause a myriad of side effects; however, holy basil is a wonderful natural option. Holy basil possesses a number of antioxidant compounds that can neutralize free radicals and plaque in the brain, which leads to a variety of mental disorders. Holy basil can be brewed into a tea to calm the nervous system and improve brain function, while also reducing the severity of schizophrenic episodes and tendencies.
